Job Responsibilities:


Shaped laser beam  for functional material surface texturing


Lasers are widely used in industries for high-precision machining of industrial materials with sub-micron resolution and/or surface texturing. This project aims to develop high speed direct laser interference patterning technique for large area fabrication of periodic micro- and submicrometer structures in a single step. Various patterns are to be created for various purposes. The patterned surface is to be characterised for the functions required; the parameters to be charaterised include but not limited to surface morphology, surface finish, feature size, depth, and distribution, surface chemistry, water contact angle, frictional characteristics and optical transparency. Various material substrates will be investigated, which may include metals, silicon, ceramics and polymers.

Job Requirements:

  • A good Master degree in Mechanical,  Manufacturing, or Aerospace  Engineering, or a related field

    Knowledge of basic optics, lasers, and machining an advantage

  • Basic knowledge of optical characterization techniques an advantage

  • Good scientific writing and communication skills
